Norfolk Island Charter Flights

The first of Air Chathams' three charter flights between Auckland and Norfolk Island took off on Thursday 25 October 2018. The flight was operated in Convair 580 ZK-CIE operating as CHATHAMS 401 to Norfolk and CHATHAMS 402 on the return.

The charter flights have been arranged by Pukekohe Travel, which has for a number of years offered tours to the Chatham Islands in conjunction with Air Chathams. Two other charters were advertised for 1 November and 8 November.

There had been a previous passenger charter to Norfolk Island on 19 May 2018 when ZK-CIE flew to Norfolk Island for a music festival. This was Air Chathams' first international flight. Since then the company has operated some freight flights to Norfolk Island.

Meanwhile Air Chathams is still hoping to have a regular service to Norfolk Island in place by early next year.

  1. What a success story for Chats. After pulling out of Tonga they really have landed on their feet. Long may it continue.
    Can't wait to see a 737 or two and maybe a couple of ATR one day.... The possibilities are endless
